MUMBAI: Alerted by locals, the police on Friday morning found two foetuses in a garbage bin near a civic school in Kurla(East).The Vinoba Bhave Nagar police said the foetuses were dumped close to Makadwala compound at Jai Shankar Chowk sometime on Thursday and were discovered wrapped individually in polythene bags. One foetus is said to be two-months-old and the other four-months-old.

They were sent to Rajawadi Hospital, whose report showed that the four-month-old foetus was male; the report on the other is awaited.

“We are investigating whether any maternity home is carrying out illegal abortions and dumping foetuses in the Kurla garbage bin,” said senior inspector N D Shivali of VB Nagar police. To get leads, Shivali said, the police are getting details of the “women who got pregnancy checks done in hospitals in the area in the last two days”.

A case has been filed against unidentified persons under section 315 (act done with intent to prevent child being born alive or to cause it to die after birth) of the Indian Penal Code.
